Sorry if this is not the right place to post this, please let me know if that's the case! I currently have an Amex Platinum charge card and have just reached my 2000 GBP spending in the first two months. Now I was reading about referral bonuses and understood that I can get 18,000 points by referring someone to (any?) Amex card. Am I correct in thinking that I can refer myself to apply for a (free) BA standard AMEX card, receive 18,000 referral points and, after spending 1,000 GBP on that card, get another 5,000 points?
